Anzac Day March 2007: NSW Pt. 2 -

View in ParlView

(generated from captions) fought alongside us on that

first day on Gallipoli in

1915. Our servicemen and

women have left us a splendid

heritage. May we and our

second cessors prove worthy

of their sacrifice. zblr Major General Adrian

Clunies-Ross, the Chairman of

the Australian War Memorial.

And now we will follow that

with a hymn, 'Abide With Me'

by the royal military college

of Australia band and the

Australian Rugby Choir and

the Brindabella chorus.

Australians do not like

singing in public which is a

shame because I do but I'm

constrained at the

moment. Please be my guest.

Away you go, Peter!

# Abide with me, fast falls

the eventide

# The darkness deepens, Lord

with me abide

# When other helpers fail and

comforts flee

# Help of the helpless, O

abide with me

# Swift to its close ebbs our

life's little day

# Earth's joys grow dim, its

glorious pass away

# Change and decay in all

around I see

abide with me # O thou who changest not,

# Hold Thou Thy cross before

my closing eyes

# Shine through gloom and

point me to the skies

# Heaven's morning breaks,

and earth's vain shadows flee

# In life, in death, O Lord,

abide with me. 'Abide With

Me', the royal military

college band and that was

sunk by the Australian Rugby

Choir along with the

Brindabella chorus and a few

people in the crowd, Peter, I

could see some mouths moving.

It is one of the most

beautiful hymn s in

English. You are right.

Australians are not biggers

and I know during the US

during services I'm always

surprised at how much people

sin deep,.

They shall not grow old as

we that are left grow old.

Age shall not weary them nor

the years condemn, at the

going down of the sun and in

the morning we will remember

them. 'The Ode' read by

Ulises de la Cruz.

(Bugler plays 'Last Post')

SILENCE (Bugler plays 'Rouse')

Lest we forget. The

Bugler a beautiful moment.

Yes, one of the most moving

parts of the ceremony.╝white

Now we move into the national anthem. Again the royal

military college band, the

Australian Rugby Choir.

# Australians all let us rejoice

# For we are young and free

# We've golden soil and wealth for toil

# Our home is girt by sea

gifts # Our land abound in nature's

# Of beauty rich and rare

# In history's page, let

every stage

#'Advance Australia Fair'

# In joyful strains then list sing...

#'Advance Australia Fair'

# In joyful strains then let us sing

#'Advance Australia Fair'! I

think we can be confident

that everyone among the crowd

and most importantly among

the dignitaries knows the

words. Even Tom Frame was

singing. He has retrieved

himself. There there was a

lot more coming from the crowd for the national

anthem. The catafalque party

prepare to dismount in the

Stone of Remembrance as the

crowd take their seats.

Although first we go to

experience the fly-past and I

say experience because I know

our commentary box here will

shake. The fly-past will to

be Royal Australian Air Force

Hawke 127. The Hawke is a

trainer air're craft

preparing air crew for the

conversion the bigger and

more powerful Hornet or F1-11

bomber operated by 76th

sqaudron and there are form

er members of that sqaudron here. The catafalque party

moving away if the Stone of

Remembrance on the the parade

ground. That is an exacting

duty was has been performed

precisely indeed. I've seen

them over the last week or so

several times rehearsing this

movement. They make it look

so simple but it is very

tightly rehearsed. Yes, that

is right. The fly-past as you

were saying, the 76 sqaudron

at RAAF base Williamstown,

the pilot is Jeffrey Richard

son. I understand the Hawke

is primarily used for leading

in fighter training to

prepare air crew for

conversion the Hornet fighter

or the F1-11 striker aircraft. That is right, it

is a training aircraft T76

sqaudron has a great history T Governor-General talked

about the campaign in pan

what in 1942 and 76 squad

dron was there defending Port

Moresby and flying over Milne

bay so it has a history that

stretches back. What is the significance of the fly-past?

We talked about the

invention of tradition

earlier and this is not

something that would happen

in Victorian times but as

aircraft become available one

fly-past ended in tragedy so

it is a new introduction and

it has only been used here at

the memorial for the national

ceremony for the last 6 or 7

years but it remind us the

Air Force has a part in the

history and the Air Force are

pleased to be included in the

ceremony. It is a spectacular

thing for the crowd to see

and from memory they come up the parade and take you by

surprise. The first time I

did commentary for the ABC in

the commentary box it shook

and shook but I thought we

were going to tumble over.

Not such a sound but a

sensation. Fortunately the

day has turned out to be a

sunny and fairly clear sky, a

good one for a fly-past I would have thought I hope

so. There is cloud about down

ANZAC parade so we might pick

out the grey fighter against

the White of the cloud but it

will come in lower than

either of us would like I

think but the real noise

happens as the aircraft

passes over the top of us and

it will come with a

whoosh. It must be difficult

to cue this on time exactly

to the commentary of the war

Mehmetcik Abide moral parade

ground because the opb

Three of them right up ANZAC

scratch parade and right over

the war memorial T vibration

is quite extensive. It

approaches quietly but leaves

noisily. Indeed. That was

piloted today by flight lieutenant Jeffrey Richardson

and to others. We were only

expecting one but we had two

Air Force Hawks. The VIP

party will now move to the

Hall of Memory. It includes

the Governor-General,

Governor-General Michael

Jeffrey, and Her Excellency

Marlena Jeffrey. Prime

Minister John Howard and Mrs

Janet Howard and the New

Zealand High Commissioner,

His Excellency Dr John

Larkindale. They will now

bees court by the Australian

War Memorial's senior staff

to the Hall of Memory where

floral tributes will be laid

at the Tomb of the Unknown

Australian Soldier. And while

they are in transit we will

take a look back at this

morning's Dawn Service here

at the grounds of the

Australian War Memorial where thousands gathered in the

morning stillness to reflect and remember.

# Into the night...

# (-Piper play s Lament) We

who are Galt erred here today

in this Dawn vigil remember

with gratitude the men and

women who have given and are

still giving.

# Abide with me, fast falls the eventide

# The darkness deepens, Lord

with me abide

# When other helpers fail and

comforts flee

# Help... They shall grow

not old as we that are left

grow old. Age shall not weary

them nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun,

and in the morning, we will

remember them. (Bugler plays

'Last Post')

The band of the royal

military college... That is

where we bring our broadcast

tot a close. I've been joined

today by historian

Before we go we will see

the Hall of Memory inside the

Hall of Memory. This is the

commemorative area of the

memorial with its various

elements which go to make the

very meaningful combination

of symbols that allow

Australians to understand and remember those who have died

in war. The dignitaries will

walk past the pool of refleg

an we can see it there

reflecting entrance the Hall

of Memory where the Tomb of the Unknown Australian

Soldier is. They are walking

past the close terse on which

are the names of the various

parts of the world where

Australians have served and

died and there is the Rolf

honour who bare the names of

all the people who have died

in war. This is a beautiful

place too. Not only on Anzac

Day but any day of the year,

a beautiful place to

visit. Yes, lots of people

come and visit. I think the

atmosphere of the courtyard

which is very much as it has

been since The lady in the

hat, think Carol Cartwright

who has been the

organiser. The dignitaries

have entered the Hall of Memory. The Governor-General

at the front and the Prime

Minister John Howard.

Members of Australia's

Federation guard are standing

guard on the Tomb of the

Unknown Australian Soldier

that is a ceremonial duty

which is of great

significance. The tomb

itself, doctor Peter Stanley,

is more symbolic than

anything, isn't it? It is a

great symbol but there is a

reality, it contains the

remains of an Australian who

died on the front and he is

the only Australian whose

body was brought back during the Great War to Australia so

as the inscription on the

tomb says he represents all

Australians who have died in

war and the Governor-General

and Her Excellency Mrs

Jeffrey are laying a spray

and a Reith in order the mark

symbolicly that sacrifice so

this man truly represents all

of those who have been

remembered today. That is an

extraordinary shot taken from

the Dome. Yes, you get a

scale with the mosaic

representing the souls of the

dead rise fringe the earth

and you look over to windows representing those who died

in the Great War, so yes, it

is a very impressive place to

be and really talks - speaks

to the impact of the Great

War on this country that so

many Australians died in the

first world war, 60,000 of

them, that this great

national trick beaut

You can't help but wonder

that at a time when we are at

war in Iraq and more troops have recently been deployed

to Afghanistan, this is all

the more difficult or

poignant perhaps for the

Prime Minister as he lays his

rose. I'm sure it is. Prime

Minister's often talk about

this. I'm working on the

World War II at the moment.

Both Prime Minister's Menzies

and Curtain reflected on the

difficulties of being a wartime Prime Minister and being responsible for

decision thanks would cause

death and I'm sure that that

responsibility weighs very heavily on Prime Ministers and possible Prime Ministers

who are faced with that job.

Now that is where we will

bring our broadcast to a

close. I've been joined today

by historian Dr Peter Stanley

from the National Museum of

Australia. Thank you, Peter,

for being with us this

morning. Rights thank you

Virginia, it has been a great

pleasure. Shortly we will

return you to Sydney for the

closing stages of the march

therend at 1pm ABC television

will broadcast coverage of the Dawn Service from

Gallipoli. We will leave you

with a look back at 50 years

of ABC coverage of Anzac Day.

Thank you for your company

during our coverage at the

Australian War Memorial here

in Canberra. Goodbye for now.

They're being led by the clan

McLeod pipes and drums. I

might've been a bit earlier, I

just got the word that our

viewers from Canberra are now

back with us at the march in

Sydney. They had their own

ceremony at the war memorial.

But welcome back to this wet

day in Sydney. Our estimated

crowd lining the route despite

the rain is 150,000. Great

turn-out for such conditions.

Hope the rain's going all round

New South Wales! Here we have

the 1 and 5 Field Ambulance

Associations. From Gallipoli,

France, Tobruk, Syria, New

Guinea and Borneo. Now on to

our British Ex-servicemen's

Association. These are people

who served in the British Army

in particular. And now reside

in Australia. Led today by Mr

Alan Kandlish, ex-grenadier

guards who served in Malaya

with the 3 Battalion. Then

enlisted in the un Australian

Army and went to the 1

Battalion, Royal Australian

Regiment. He is immediately in

front of the Guards

Association. The Gren gear

Guards was one of two regiments

who swore allegiance to King

Charles when he returned to

England from exile. They were

originally part of Cromwell's


But I didn't see too many

bowler hats and furmed umbrellas. They've obviously

been in Australia too long! I

think so. --


Now the ex-British Airborne.

You can see them wearing their

distinguished beret, led by Mr

Eddie Card. They are still operational. Their history goes

back to the Second World War.

Their famous drop at Arnhem and

the Falklands war, where they

had to parachute battalions

when they took the islands back

from the Argentinians. They're

worn not only by the paras of

the regular Army but the

reservists as well. And the


There we have the brigade of

Ghurkas. Is there a more

emotive or better-known name

than the Gurkhas? These are the

natives of Nepa wl, who served

over many, many years very

faithfully with the British

Army. The Royal Hong Kong

Regiment. The Hong Kong

volunteers were formed in 1844,

and served until Hong Kong was

handed back to the Chinese.

That was in 1997. In fact,

both you and I served with many

Australians who on moving to

Hong Kong for work reasons,

served with the Hong Kong

volunteers. Now we have the Air

Force and Special Forces group.

Again, you can see there where

they have served, Italy, burm

ya, Borneo, Vietnam and New Guinea --

Burma. Despind it, the Burma

Star Association. Obviously

from the 14th Army, led by our

former Governor-General, Field

Marshal Sir William Slim.

Russell Young leading their

march today. Lots of flags an

banners and United Nations and

national flags. Here are the

volunteers. Obviously I've got

it wrong. Warrant officer Chong

has his name on the banner. We

spoke about the Royal Hong Kong

Volunteers just a moment ago.

You have extra sensory

perception, Bob! These

incidentally are all of the

military services who have been

or continue to be part of the

British Commonwealth.

Behind them we have, from

India, the Sunshine Coast

Regiments. These wonderful soldiers --

the Sikh Regiments. Part of the

Indian Army, one of the many

groups from the Indians who

fought with us. I just saw in

the front ranks there, an

ex-warrant officer, Jasmindah

Singh. Beside him were - just

trying to see if he is still there. Easily recognisable by

their turbans. All resident now

in Australia. Very colourful

turbans they are, too! The

Sikhs were actually some of our

partners in the Dardanelles

campaign in World War I.

Besides the Australians, many

bigger forces went and involved

themselves there. This is our

Lady Quinns, a Maltese band

baseded in the western part of

Sydney. They're leading the

Maltese contingent in today's

march led by Tony Dananasti.

They've served in British Army

regiments, Malta, North Africa,

or in the Air Force units based

there during World War II.

Terrible time. They took a

continual pounding from the

German Navy and the Air Force

and they survived and of

course, ordered --

awarded the George Cross. By

King George VI for their

efforts and their staunch defence during World War

II. Now the row deeshan veterans. --

Rhodesian forces. The British

South African police, the

Rhodesian regiment and other

units in their armed forces.

First formed in 1898 to serve

in the Boer War alongside

Australian troops and took part

in relief of Basakink. In the

Second World War, these forces

served with many British units

and supplied three squadrons to

the Royal Air Force. We see

members of the light infantry

wearing the green beret of the commandos because they were

designate ed as a commando unit

within the Rhodesian Army. Now

the Allied troops. No surprise

who is leading, the US and US

marine contingent led by Dave

Raymond, commander of the

Legion Post, No. 1 Sydney.

Australiansened Americans have

been fighting together since

the First World War, in France,

World War II, south west pass

ifks, US Pacific fleet, in the

Berlin airlift, in Korea,

Vietnam, of course, lesser

known perhaps in the Sinai,

multinational force observers,

Gulf 1 and 2 and also actions

in Somalia, the Americans

supported us in East Timor and

currently we're working

alongside them in Afghanistan

and Iraq. The band incidentally

is that of the New South Wales

Corrective Services. We're hob

noured today to have a dematch

tent --

honoured today to have a

dematchment from USSLassan, a

guided missile destroyer. The

battle we remember most perhaps

is the battle of the Coral Sea.

You can see in the corner of

your screen where it combined

Australian and US forces,

turned back a Japanese invasion

convoy. Escorted by aircraft

carriers which was intent on

invading Port Moresby. The

American aircraft carriers

destroyed one Japanese carrier,

lost one themselves, Lexing

tonne, and the cruiser force

led by an Australian Admiral

turned back the in --

invasion convoy and that was

the end of that effort. We

just saw a Czechoslavakia

contingent. They saw action in

1940. Now the Estonian


Next in order should be the

contingent representing France.

There we are. There's the

French, led today by the President of the local

association, Theo Arivas.

Brings back great emotive

memories. Their work in the

World War II. There are many

with the French hat on The

Kepi. We see the blue and

white flag of Greece. They have

members who served from the

First World War to Korea, all

of the Greek services are

represented, the Army, Navy,

Air Force and the sacred

brigade, the Greek command os.

The Greeks were our allies

during World War I and 2 and

fought so hard against and

supported Australian soldiers

in Greece and Crete. Next the

Irish detachment, led by Miles

Mooney from the airs ire corps. United ex-Irish services

association consists of

returned ex-service veteran s

from all over Ireland who

served with the Allied forces.

You will notice the banner has

a map of island with the four

provinces in each corner. 94

battles, seizures an countries

in which Irish veterans served,

beginning at Agincourt and end

being the Zulu wars in 1880.

Now the Korean Veterans

Association, led today by Myan

shin Chai . And the Republic of

Korea has a long association

with Australia, particularly in

the Korean War. Many of these

veterans would've served with

Australian troops. They carry

today four flags, the

Australian national flag, the

Korean national flag, the

Korean veterans' flag and the

Korean marine corps flag. Some

serves officers there, visiting

Australia in uniform at the

moment. Incidentally, the

Korean Veterans Association has

a worldwide membership of over

4.5 million, so it's a very,

very big organisation. Some of

its members received an

American US presidential citation for their action at

Kapyong, the Korean War has a

lot of emotive reactions here

within Australia, although, unfortunately, is often termed

the forgotten war. But the

Australians served in Korea

with some of the veterans here

on parade today.

Now we see the neglect --

Netherlands detachment, led by

their President, who was

present in Nagasaki when the

atom bomb fell. Marching here

today are the Royal neglected

land Navy, Merchant Navy,

survivors of the battle of the

Java Sea and airmen who served

with the Australian Air Force.

They were our nearest neighbour during World War II and we were

the base from which they and we

planned the reoccupation of

what was called the

Netherlands, the East Indies,

now, of course, Indonesia. You

see on the banner, the sorts of

contributions they made. Very

apparent part of the war effort

in the south-west Pacific area

during the Second World War. --

Netherlands. See the rain seems

to have eased a little now as

we rook down with that high

view down on the marchers as

they proceed along George Street toward Park Street but

it's pleasing to see, even at

this late hour, and given the

weather conditions, the crowd

is still there supporting

them. This looks like the

group representing the Republic

of the Philippines. Led today

by Mr Tom Bayano. These are war

veterans who've made their home

in Australia. They're most

welcome. Of course, the

population of Filipinos who are

now living in Australia is

increasing rapidly. We have

some very, very big Filipino

communities in Australia, and

it's good to see many of these

veterans on parade here today.

Cl We appear to have a new

brand coming through! Yes it's

... Loud!

We can just hear in the

background, we did hear the

sirens from an emergency

service, but we can hear now

the Philippines Marching Band,

and yes, aren't they colourful!

And don't they sound good! This

would have to be the most

colourful band that we have

seen today. I would give them,

I think, the colour to the

Filipinos as against those from

Harry Potter in their purple

and black. Very colourful


Now we have the Polish

veterans. Led by Ted Mackweski.

The Polish worldwide ex-servicemen's association was

established in 1947. There

would be no more shall we say

dedicated a group of men during that Second World War than the

Poles who were trying to win

back their country. With the RA

F1/10ths of the total enemy

destroyed was destroyed by

Polish fighter pilots flying

for the RAF. Also, pole lib

grand troops took part in the

blood y fighting at Monte

Casino and there were Poles

with Australia in Tobruk. The

Serbian detachment now.

Throughout the centuries

Serbian people were the allies

of western democratic countries

protecting Europe from attacks

from the east. During World War

II they were the first to form

resistance groups against the

Nazis in occupied Europe.

Serbia was one of the countries

captured during the thrust down

the Balkan peninsula towards

Greece in which so many

Australian an New Zealand

troops fought. Typical head

wear. Very colourful and easy

to distinguish. Very warm, too. Probably the ideal

head-dress on a day like that!

The Russians, and we can see

the typical order of wearing of

ribbons on the Russian style, a

little, shall we say, a little

more liberal than we in

Australia are used to wearing

at the moment. But we recall,

of course, the support from the

Russian Army during World War

II, and the invasion of Russia,

indeed, by the German Army and

the defence of Stalingrad in

World War II. Many and

increasing numbers of Russians

are now coming to live in

Australia, and we have many

boys from Russia at our

boarding schools here in Sydney

at the moment, a great association, and it's good to

see them here. Turkish group

here is led by Mr Akras. They

fought alongside Australians in

Korea. Turkey now belongs to

NATO and with the Allies in the

Gulf War. Despite the fierce

fighting that occurred in the Dardanelles, Australian and

Turkish soldiers developed

mutual respect and friendship

for each other. This bond

encourage ed many Turkish to

settle in Australia. The words

of Colonel Ataturk are on the

flag behind the group. Then the

troops from Vietnam. They

serveed with Australians and

American troops in the Vietnam

conflict in 1965 to 1972. They

come from all south Vietnam's

former services, that is , the

Army, Navy, Air Force, marines

and they now have settleed in

aus. It's noticeable that this

contingent is increasing each

year. It's good to have them

here today at the parade. There is an excellent

representation there on the

parade today. Wave there to the

crowd. And it is a big crowd.

I've said it a couple of times

but I'm surprised the crowd has

stayed, lining the streets

streets of the march route

today despite the very adverse

weather conditions. Lots of

umbrellas, by the marchers and

indeed alongside the road. Now,

here are the Australian World

War I Des kren dants. This is a

relatively new group formed

here in Sydney and comprises

descendants of Australian

soldiers who fought in World

War I. Not only in France,

which we read so much, but also

for those troops under General

Harvey Schavell who fought so

well in Palestine, Syria and

they took Damascus. And just

like to mention that we will

have the Dawn Service from

Gallipoli at 1 o'clock a little

later today, and just stay with

Channel 2 and you will see a

recording of the service there.

Another new group, the

Descendants of Set Trans. Only

a small group at the moment.

Good of them to turn up and

take this Anzac Day March in

the spirit in which it's

organised. It's great to see

them here participating and

marching in memory of their

forefathers. Those last ones I

think were descendant s

probably of New Zealand World

War I, 'cause I saw the New

Zealand flag fluttering

proudly. There they are there.

We see now the march

officials in the RSL

administration. They're led

today by the marchers' chief

marshal, Commodore Ian

Callaway. Malcolm Little with

him, also John Balfour and

Garry Brahe. They're all

volunteers. They work long

hours over a long time to put

this march together each year

and they do a superb job.

Malcolm Little there, with the

beard, and the hat. And it's

great to see them on parade

today with march secretary Bob

Batty there with the glasses.

Without in group of volunteer

workers, this march would not

take place. Well done indeed!

We might take this opportunity, because we're

talking about the march, it's

been going a long time. Let's

go wandering down memory lane

now, with 50 years of Anzac Day

Marches with ABC Television.

# Here I go # On my way

# Wish me luck

# As you waive me goodbye # With a cheer

# Not a tear

# Give me a smile

# I can keep all the while

# In my heart

# While I'm away

# Till we meet once again, you and I

# Wish me luck

# As you wish me goodbye

# Wush me luck

# As you wave me goodbye

# Here we go

# Here I go

# On my way

# Wish me luck

# As you wave me goodbye

# With a cheer, not a tear # Make it gay

# Give me a smile I can keep all the while

# In my heart

# While I'm away

# Till we meet once again

# Wish me luck

# As you wave me goodbye #

Now, as we've come to the

close of the 2007 telecast of

the Anzac Day March, I'd like

to thank my three fellow

commentators and the OB crew

and the production team for a

job very well done. Now we

return for a moment to the

cenotaph, and reflect on those

events that those deeds of 92

years ago across the other side

of the world that became a

legend. The great Anzac spirit

and these words from the poem

"Light of Anzac by John Sandies.

Lest we forget. And stay

with ABC Television for in a

moment or two we'll be crossing

to Anzac Cove for the Dawn

Service at Gallipoli. Goodbye

and until next year. Closed Captions by CSI
